Local Library to Host Resume Workshop for High School Seniors

The Erlanger Branch of the Kenton County Public Library will host a High School Senior Resume Workshop on Wednesday, January 20 from 6-7:30 pm.

This is a one-on-one workshop that allows high school seniors to meet with a human resources coach. Professionals from the library, Northern Kentucky University, Brighton Center, Beckfield College, Citi Bank and other local businesses and organizations will volunteer as coaches.

Students are asked to bring their background information including education, jobs, volunteer activities, special skills, interests and tentative career goals. The library will provide a flash drive so they can store their resume for future applications. The coach will help the student start their resume using MS Word or a resume template.

Eden Grey, Teen Librarian with the Kenton County Public Library, and Samantha Palmer of NKADD have been meeting with high school seniors throughout the month of January to discuss the critical elements of a first resume.

Registration is required since there are only 15 spots available for this one-on-one workshop. Register at www.kentonlibrary.org/events or by calling 962-4002.
